Ford Mustang Mach-E To Gets Performance Boost Prior To Launch

Ford: “The all-electric Mustang Mach-E isn’t a Mustang in name only – and we’ll let the horses do the talking.”

Ford has officially announced today that the final version of the Mustang Mach-E will get slightly higher horsepower and torque than initially estimated.

The increase of up to several percent (already shown two weeks ago) is an additional incentive for the reservation holders to trigger orders, as in the U.S. order banks are open.

  • Extended-range all-wheel-drive Mach-E will deliver 346 horsepower/258 kilowatts and 428 lb.-ft. of torque, up from previous estimates of 332 horsepower/240 kilowatts and 417 lb.-ft., right out of the gate – with a targeted 0-60-mph time in the mid-5-second range*
  • Extended-range rear-wheel-drive models will produce 290 horsepower/216 kilowatts and 317 lb.-ft., up from 282 horsepower/210 kilowatts and 306 lb.-ft.*
  • Standard-range all-wheel-drive models will pump out 266 horsepower/198 kilowatts and 428 lb.-ft., up from 255 horsepower/190 kilowatts and 417 lb.-ft.*
  • Standard-range rear-wheel-drive models will deliver 266 horsepower/198 kilowatts and 317 lb.-ft., up from 255 horsepower/190 kilowatts and 306 lb.-ft.*

The * means that the peak performance of the powertrain depends on available peak battery power as usually, at a lower state-of-charge, performance is noticeably limited (mainly acceleration).

Ron Heiser, Mustang Mach-E chief program engineer said:

“We remain dedicated to delivering on the promise of the Mustang name. These better-than-estimated performance figures show that our team is squeezing every last bit of performance out of this vehicle so that it not only delivers Mustang style but Mustang soul as well.”
